When I gave birth to my son it changed my life. I have struggled most of my young adult life figuring out what I wanted to be  when I grow up.  My many nights of prayer and many days looking through college academic lists were over once I layed eyes on my son.  I want to be a nurse midwife.  In January 2013 I began taking classes toward my nursing degree. After a lot of hard work I have made it into the nursing program and am in my final year.  Unfortunately my grants and scholarships are not enough to cover my tuition costs this last year of the program.  I am unable to work because I also manage the homefront on top of being in school FULL time and takeing care of my toddler.  My husband recently got out of the Marine Corps and has been transitioning into daily life, which has been a little more difficult than we planned. We ask for a little help now, so that way we can fully transition into a beautiful life.  We promise to pay it forward in the future.
